You may a 'touch' of costochondritis, which is one of the issues I suffer with. Check out on google MD. It can be sever at times and reads like you're having a heart attack. Not fun....

I get this unrelentless sharp pain whenever I overexhert myself. It is so painfully sometimes I can't catch my breath. Heart Dr ran all the tests. I am normal. This pain carries on for a while till I calm down. My Rheumatologist said it is part of A.S.

Yes mine hurts also,I have to take deep breaths to extend the lungs. I have broken most all my ribs before being diagnosed and my acupuncturist said one of my ribs is bulging out my back so for 12 yrs I thought it was like a tumor. I hate that most doctors don’t tell you what may happen or know how the body works. With all the surgery and illness I’ve had or have I should be smarter than most doctors lol. Hang in there life is an adventure that’s what I tell myself

Yes, daily especially when sleeping my ribs and chest along with back are like a tin man. Its costochondritis which is inflammation of the cartilage in the ribcage and it limits your breathing as well, not fun!
